This was our first time in café merlot. Excellent food and friendly and efficient staff. I would definitely go back. The Fermanagh lamb dish was cooked to perfection and the hake dish was also excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Great atmosphere and excellent service. The food, wine and port were wonderful. When we are back in the area we will most definitely be returning to this fantastic restaurant.
Over the years we have eaten in this restaurant several times and have always had interesting dishes which are well presented. Starters on this visit included antepasta and squid with black pudding, mussels and chorizo. Mains of roast cod with boeuf bourgnion, hake and local chicken breast were excellent. There is a decent reasonably priced wine list. We enjoyed Picpoul and a Bordeaux Reserve. Desserts were delicious and non stodgy. The service was of a good standard and some of the staff speak other European languages which is unusual for the area.
The staff at Cafe Merlot looked after us very well, the food and the whole experience was excellent and we will definitely return again soon.
My past experiences have always been exceptional but on my most recent visit my ribeye steak had far to much fat in it, I'd say it was almost half the weight in fat which was very disappointing, I also had the assiette of desserts with a blueberry cake which I found to have been not cut fresh and had a kind of hard texture, maybe an off day but having said that I will still be back..
Fabulous food and service. Had to ask a local where to find it cos it's a wee bit hidden through a s,all door down lots of steps! Well worth looking for. What a treasure to find.
Food presented well..asked for steak well done but still pinkish in middle.. when resting knife and fork on plate between bites , both kept slipping down the plate into the sauce , which meant having to clean them... dessert good but would have preferred small dessert spoon instead of big spoon .....
The food was delicious. I reserved table on internet but it wasn't reserved when we got there. Suggest you book on phone as it was full on a Monday! If no problem I would rate it 6.
This is fast becoming my favourite restaurant in Enniskillen, the staff are always friendly and the food is wholesome, interesting and ultra tasty, the atmosphere is great and I can't wait for my next visit.
The food here is amazing, would highly recommend it to anyone. You are made feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door and service is great.
